: The World About Us

The Year of the Green Centre Narrated by Paine Barry Australia's wettest year on record has brought floods and disaster to many areas. Central Australia is the driest part of this driest of permanently inhabited continents, yet even this has been deluged. A normally drought-gripped land has been awakened into the most vividly spectacular bloom of desert flowers and animals in living memory. The desert rains have triggered birds into breeding and produced abundant food for insects, lizards, mice and men.

: M*A*S*H

A new comedy film series
Five O'Clock Charlie
At exactly five o'clock each day a lone North Korean pilot makes a bombing raid on the large munitions store thoughtfully sited by the army right next to the hospital unit. Unfortunately for the M*A*S*H personnel Charlie's aim is deadly inaccurate, which leads Hawkeye to take bets on what - or whom - he will hit next. After all, it passes the time.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
